Wind noise is definitely there in scorpio. The sound starts getting prominent after 70. At 90 it's pretty loud, starts reducing a bit as you near 100 (surprisingly) and after 105, as expected, it rises never to lower again.
The noise is inevitable because after all this is nowhere near a sedan in terms of aerodynamics. Just consider the height and the overall shape and you'll stop worrying about the sound
The sound is even more when there are crosswinds - best is to go at 50 to 60 at such times.
Tyre noise is a different issue. All tyres create noise and it depends on speed, tyre width, weight acting on it etc. Tyre noise usually doesn't come into major play until you cross 70-75 kph
